    Beneficiary of Largest GoFundMe Campaign in IL to Retire

    Sanchez said he will no longer work as a paleta vendor for Paleteria y Neveria Poncho, a company he's worked with for more than 10 years.

    What an amazing story. According to one of the televised broadcasts about this story donations came in from 60 different countries. So heartwarming to see people coming together from do many different places.

    I hope they have a wonderful retirement.
